5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting, 28. Dezember 1999
Most of the sci-fi I've read happens in a world quite close to ours: a few high-tech gadgets are introduced but the world stays mostly the same. Alien races seem to be more like humans in costumes.
Vinge's universe is so wonderfully different: the ideas of an intelligent pack race, the Skroderiders and the segmentation of the galaxy into zones where technology works at different speeds are something I haven't seen before. All ideas are well thought out, and there are no loose threads that I noticed.
The first part of the book might be hard to read, since the terms of the universe are not explained beforehand. I don't find this a disadvantage at all but rather the opposite: I like being presented with a situation with many unknowns, putting the book down for a while and theorizing about what is really going on.
Most amusing are the news groups -- the interstellar group communication works just like today's Usenet! What Vernon failed to predict in 1992 is that it won't even take a hundred years before they're all filled with spam. MAKE.TRANSCENDENSE.FAST! :)

Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
von W. R. Stevens

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book for UNIX programming, 5. September 1999
Tragically, mr. Stevens passed away 4 days ago.
However, I am certain that APUE will live on for a long time. I have been a professional UNIX programmer for several years, and no other book, no other course, no other person has taught me as much about UNIX programming as Steven and his book.
Every library function, every system call is meticously described. Especially valuable is the book's description on how each function works under various flavours of UNIX: Is this covered by POSIX, does it come from BSD or System 5?
APUE is the only book that has a permanent place on my desk. If you do UNIX programming, you should have it too.
Thank you, Richard. I wish though I had thanked you while you still lived.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Writing so alive, 5. April 1999
I'm only about a fifth into the book, but I just cannot keep reading it. No, the book is not bad, it is simply that incredibly good that I have to take a break to enjoy the experience fully. I fear that if I keep on reading, the book will end too fast - and the next volume will not be out for another year.
It has been more than half a year since I read through the first volume of this trilogy; just a few weeks before that I read Hobb's Assassin trilogy. Between then and now I have ready many fantasy and sci-fi books, but little has been as good as Hobb's writing (one that I did like and was in a way similar to Hobb's books was Elizabeth Moon's "The Deed of Paksenarrion"). I read the first three parts of Philip Farmer's Riverworld saga just before I began "The Mad Ship" - while reading Riverworld, I found myself often reading quickly, impatient for something to happen. But in "The Mad Ship", every paragraph, every line is significant and enjoyable.
Looking through the books in my bookcases, I don't think I see any author I have enjoyed as much as Robin Hobb. I'm afraid this review has come out as being very subjective and with little fact, but I cannot help wanting to share the joy I have had from reading Mrs. Hobb's work.
